10 gift ideas for car lovers
1.a piloting course
Does he/she miss a Grand Prix and cherish the Ferrari team? Does he/she dream of “cutting” all the bends? To exceed 130 km/h without the fear of the gendarme? The driving course is, without a doubt, the ideal gift.
Be careful, however, not to put the bodywork before the engine.While most circuits offer courses these are, in reality, only laps of the circuit.But before "turning", you really have to learn to drive - technical difference of driving - with an instructor.If the experience is successful, then consider offering tours in Ferrari.

2.a miniature car
You don't have to play with little cars to love them.Nor to have driven in life-size models - DS 21, Ford Taunus, 4L… - to collect them.Since the 1930s, the British brand Dinky Toys, and its French version Meccano, offer young and old miniatures of trucks, motorcycles, cars and other rolling vehicles (including lawn mowers!) Manufactured with the greatest attention to detail.
Collectors are snapping up vintage models, but you can also buy reproductions made today of vehicles from the 30s to the 60s.The "Dinky Toys Ledger" at Editions Atlas will be a valuable guide.
